By Alison Blackman
Work It Out, a new collection from M.A,C. Cosmetics is exciting my spirit with a collection, inspired by athleisure fashion, that will have you exercising your right to bold, bright color cosmetics that really have an impact!

It’s fun to play with color and take risks. Just how far you want to go is up to you! Don’t be afraid to experiment. That’s what makeup should be all about!
One thing for sure, if you wore these colors to your gym, you might get a lot of attention, but not get much of a workout done!

If you’re wearing a pink or red shadow, for example, keep pencil accents more subtle, or use a complimentary color. Once you start playing around with
Once you start playing around with many different color combos you really have to know what works and what doesn’t. Takes selfies and see what it really looks like on your face, before going out to meet your adoring public.
